    Q
    Why should I use Prime Source Duo Stick surfactant instead of dish soap?
    Can't I just use some dish detergent with my herbicide instead of buying this?
    A

    Many professional herbicides will recommend using a non-ionic surfactant such as Prime Source Duo Stick to increase the efficacy of the herbicide. You will see this primarily on post-emergent herbicides (some herbicides, like many RoundUp products, already contain a surfactant). Besides not being labeled for use as a surfactant or spreader sticker, even a small amount of dish soap would cause foaming in your spray equipment, which would interfere with your spraying and possibly cause the need for extensive cleaning of your equipment. Results from dish soap as a surfactant would be inconsistent, possibly causing you to waste product (and the time you took to apply it) with limited results. Dish detergents may also cause increased phytotoxicity (burning or other damage) to desirable plants, especially during the hot summer months when post-emergent herbicides are often used.

    Prime Source Duo Stick is a high quality methylated seed oil (MSO) and organisilicone surfactant (OSS) that strips the waxy cuticle of plant leaves for better pesticide absorption while offering excellent spreading and coverage of your herbicide. MSO surfactants are used most frequently with herbicides containing quinclorac, such as Drive XLR8.

    We sell many other surfactants that can be used with herbicides and pesticides as well. PS 804 Select is a 4-way surfactant that also contains an acidifier and a disposition aid to reduce drift. It also improves penetration of herbicides into the substrate of target plants. We are happy to answer any question you may have about what surfactant may be right for your needs.

  • Asked by Phil from Tulsa, Ok

    Q
    What is the difference between Prime Source Duo Stick and Prime Source Surfacant?
    Looking for the best spreader/sticker product to add to my pre-emergent spray tank to treat aprroximately one acre.
    A

    Prime Source Duo Stick is a made with a methylated soybean oil and organisilicone surfactant (OSS) that strips the waxy cuticle of plant leaves for better pesticide absorption while offering excellent spreading and coverage of your herbicide. MSO surfactants are used most frequently with herbicides containing quinclorac, such as Drive XLR8.

    Prime Source's Surfactant 80 / 20 is a non-ionic surfactant mainly used on leaf surfaces. This product has no chemical interaction with other active ingredients and allows for a uniform delivery of the spray mix. It increases coverage and assists with penetration of the insecticide and fungicide to the plants and improves herbicide retention.This surfactant is designed to help spread and penetrate turf protection chemicals into target surfaces. When added to the spray mixture, 80/20 Select will increase the wetting ability, provide more uniform distribution on the leaf surface, and improve retention. It just simply increases performance.

    Unless the pre-emergent product is a pre and a post emergent, there is no reason to use a surfactant.

  • Asked by Robert from Alabama
    06/05/2018
    Q
    What is the mix rate for Prime Source Duo Stick for pesticides and fungicides? What is the recommended mixture for Glyphosate and SedgeHammer?
    Some prodects have different mixture rate recommendations for these 2 products.
    A

    The Prime Source Duo Stick can be diluted at a 0.16- 0.48 fl oz per gallon of water. Sedgehammer is mixed at 13.5 grams in 1-2 gallons of water to cover 1000 sq. ft, the amount of glyphosate depends on which product you are using. You will mix them both together at the recommended mix rates per the product label.

    Q
    Can I use Prime Source Duo Stick Select with 4-Speed XT?
    A

    Per the 4-Speed XT product label: Adding oil, wetting agent, or other surfactant (such as Prime Source Duo Stick Select) to the spray may be done to increase effectiveness on weeds, but doing so may reduce selectivity to turf resulting in turf damage. Failure to observe the precautions may result in injury to turf and other desirable vegetation. Please review the product label for listed precautions.

    Q
    Can I use Prime Source Duo Stick to aid glyphosate & tryclopyr penetrating Similax Bona Nox (sawbrier)?
    A

    Prime Source Duo Stick is a high-quality methylated see oil and organosilicone surfactant for use with herbicides and insecticides. Be sure to use a type of adjuvant that is recommend on the product label for whatever herbicides you are using. If an adjuvant is not recommended, then be aware that using one may decrease selectivity on desirable plants.

    Q
    Can Prime Source Duo Stick Select be mixed with Trimec 992
    I was planning to combine quinclorac and trimec together. Quinclorac recommends this surfactant, but the Trimec label to my understanding suggests not using a surfactant. I am thinking if I combine the two herbicides I should not use the surfactant.
    A

    No, Prime Source Duo Stick Select should not be added to Trimec as it already has a small amount of surfactant in it.

    Q
    Can I use Prime Source Duo Stick on my Bermuda grass? What weeds does it target?
    A

    Yes, Prime Source Duo Stick can safely be applied to Bermuda turf. It is not labeled for specific weeds because it is not a herbicide. The Duo Stick Select is specially formulated for use with herbicides and other pesticides that require MSO or MVO. The oil serves as a major penetrant that supports particular pesticides in shifting through the waxy cuticle of leaves and plants for optimal efficiency.

  • Asked by Angela from West Greenwich, Ri

    Q
    Can I mix Prime Source Duo Stick with Avid 0.15 EC and Forbid 4F?
    A

    Avid 0.15 EC and Forbid 4F have not been tested to be mixed with adjuvants or surfactants, such as Prime Source Duo Stick. Per each products’ label, if you would like to add an adjuvant or surfactant, it is recommended that a small area be sprayed first to make certain that no phytotoxicity occurs. An MSO surfactant such as Duo Stick is used generally only with herbicides since it is designed to help cut through the waxy coating on plants, so if you were to add a surfactant, be sure it is one that is for use with insecticides/miticides and not just herbicides.
